    Cambridge Clinical Research Fellowships – applications now open

    The Cambridge Clinic Research Fellowships scheme provides an entry point into a career in clinical academia. It provides salary support and a consumable allowance for up to one year, during which time it is anticipated that successful candidates will apply for nationally competitive fellowships, with a view to completing a PhD.

    The scheme offers successful applicants intensive research training in an exceptional environment for outstanding doctors, nurses, midwives and allied health professionals in the early stages of a clinical academic research training pathway. In 2020, Cambridge Clinical Research Fellowships are being made possible thanks to investment from Addenbrooke’s Charitable Trust, the Evelyn Trust and the NIHR Cambridge Biomedical Research Centre.

    Applications for medics are now open, with the other staff groups to open in the autumn. Applications are invited from any field but we particularly welcome applications in renal, rheumatology, pancreatic cancer and Parkinson’s disease. Applications should be submitted by email no later than 06 April.  The application form and guidance notes can be found here.

    **Update**: Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, we have made the decision to extend the deadline for preliminary applications until Monday 6th July. Applications will be reviewed following this, and we anticipate that interviews will be held in Autumn/Winter 2020. The exact timetable will be confirmed at a later date.

    For any queries, please contact Harriet Webb, Grant Manager, on 01223 348990 or Harriet.Webb@act4addenbrookes.org.uk
